fish trap guide users

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if some of you have the fish trap guide flip over portable ice house can give me some feedback on the house. I am looking at a Guide or Yukon, but the Yukon looks more comfortable and bigger while the Guide looks like it sits very low. I have sat in both of them but forgot. So feedbacks and thoughts on the Guide fish trap will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! happy fishing

You hit it on the head. If you have room and can afford a yukon, get that. I have a guide because its the biggest one that can fit in my truck. Being 6'-3" I cannot stand up straight in it. If you are 5'-6" or under it would be alright I believe.

Robert has it just right. For two guys, the guide works but it is a tight fit. I too bought the guide because at the time it was all I could fit in my truck. I always fish with a partner and we generally set up three lines in the house, two jiggin and one deadstick, with a minnow bucket, vex, sunflower, and the aqua vu all set up inside. It is nice but if you have the room in your truck and the money, get the yukon. Good luck and enjoy your time on the ice.

yep i agree with the previous 2. the guide is a good shack for fishing two, but with vexs, aqua views minnow bucket, heater, etc. it can get kind of tight...cant move around a lot. we fish with two lines down and a hole for the aqua view. works pretty good. my suggestion would be, if you think you will go out by yourself and have to pull it by hand, get the guide, but if most of your fishing is done by truck, get the yukon. it weighs about 30 lbs more, but it does have more room, and more headroom. i couldnt fit the yukon in my truck...i have small-box syndrome, and the guide fits...barely. cant go wrong with either. i know the yukons are on sale all over the place, and i had a heck of a time finding a guide in early january.

hope this helps, good luck

like others have said the guide is an excellent one man shack with the option of fishing two. If i were fishing two people most the time i would go w/ the yukon, but the light wieght of the guide fit what i was going to be using it for. Either way, both shacks are nice, it just depends on the room you will need.

I agree with all the comments above. Get the bigger house if you can afford it and have a way to get it from Point A to Point B. The reason I have a guide is it fits really nice in my trailblazer.

one of the main reasons I got the guide was because my brother has one also, and we wanted to be able to link them together. Also, like everyone else is saying, it's the only one that fit in my truck. So maybe look what your buddies have because that link sure creates a lot of room. (would be nice to be able to stand up in the house though)

Im a big guy and I did alot of research on the Yukon/guide models before I bought. The biggest difference between the 2 is the yukon gives you 5" of width on the tub, 2" extra ice/length, and 10 inches of hieght. I ended up getting the yukon Im 6' and I still cannot stand straight up I have to cock my head a little but it is plenty comfy for 2, A little hard to get 4 8" holes and have room for a sunflower and a vex, but we make it work. After seeing my brother in law get the Voyager model, im kicking myself for not getting that one, looks monsterous compared to mine.

I own the Voyeager and love having it, except when I have to drag it by hand and there is a good snow cover on the ice. Mostly I use the wheeler though. The amount of space inside of it is incredible and I like having all my gear organized. grin.gif

    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
